    Zack,

    Outstanding!!! A sad reality of the absurdity of the PC mentality.

    Devon, Alex and Allison did not have to add “christian” in front of white racist bastard … that’s a given … LOL!!! 😉

    I wish you well 🙂 Melek

This includes those who are Western, American/Israeli, Caucasian, Republican, conservatives, Rich, Capitalist, Christian, male, heterosexual and so on down the chain.” ~ Dr. Sanity

    Zack,
    Came across your talent via Facebook. Hope this propells your stuff to national attention! This is the best way to ‘tweak’ the libs and therapy for those of us who need a good laugh. Please keep it going. In the store you need ‘Diversity’ Mugs and hats. See you on O’Reilly.

    As a German-American, should I get offended whenever someone refers to a broken machine as being “on the Fritz,” implying that all German-Americans are lazy? (Well, that’s what the slag term meant before The Great War).

    My knowledge of European history instructs me that there is no such thing as “white” people. For example, the anamosity (spell check, please) between the Celtic Irish and the Germanic English is a race war dating back long before the Reformation.

    How many Pollocks does it take to see this fact?

  1. Thanks Melek. For me this recent see-no-evil (or should I say see-no-terrorism) spin from the lefties is the crowning glory of their decades of madness and self-delusion. They have become as the O.J. jury: “we believe only what we want to believe, despite bloody bodies and mountains of evidence to the contrary.”

    Thanks Steve, great to have you here. I really am planning to sell those mugs and tees before long, though the Obameconomy has put a heavy crimp in my entrepreneurial style this year.

    GeekNerd: Germans– “lazy?” Boy there was a misbegotten stereotype if ever I heard one. Thanks, interesting stuff… after that post I may need to create a Racial Corner somewhere on this blog.

    Truly outstanding Zack. Easily one of your best, keep it up.

    Confronted by this double standard, I wonder what the voices under the bridge will say?

    Zack-
    Excellent comparison of the two extreme sides of ‘political correctness’.

    I recall that shortly after Tim McVeigh was executed, I looked around to try and find what death sentences were carried out as soon as McVeighs was, after his sentence was given. He was sentenced to death on 6/13/97, executed 6/11/01. Just two days shy of four (4) years on death row.

    Of those executed from death rows, I have yet to find anything that short a time between sentencing and execution,… in the past twenty+ years.
    Even Texas, who has the most active turn-over on death row, the past few I have seen had 7 -9 years of appeals, before the needle was stuck in their arm.

    McVeigh certainly deserved to die – I simply wonder if there was more useful information authorities could have gotten from him.

    For whomever among these Islamic thugs gets the death sentence, keep an eye on how many years they sit on death row. I will predict that McVeigh will keep his ‘rocket-docket’ record.

    Mark,
    Our resident trolls tend to come out flinging at select contributors – they typically have nothing to contribute to the substance of what Zack posts, other than some sniveling negative sentence fragment.
    If you do not care to sift through the past few months of Zack’s postings, you will see them soon enough.

    Did you read ‘Billy Goats Gruff’ in grade school, too-?

  2. It’s an intellectually dishonest framing of the issue, and one that no one I have ever seen actually does.

    I have no idea who these two boogeymen are supposed to be, but I feel like everyone can agree (strawmen aside) that

    “White Dude Kills a Bunch of People” = he’s a murderer and he should be tried and convicted and punished.

    “Non-White Dude Kills a Bunch of People” = he’s a murderer and he should be tried and convicted and punished.

    The clash comes when you guys bitch and moan about THE PC POLICE keeping you from saying that every [Muslim or whatever] has blood on their hands for the crimes of individuals in that group. If people were running around going “Timothy McVeigh just shows us why white folk shouldn’t be allowed to buy fertilizer” or asking “how many more people need to be killed by Christians before we realize their so-called RELIGION OF PEACE is a farce and should be wiped off the planet” or whatever, I certainly missed these comments.

    The double standard is that when a white and/or Christian person does something terrible, it’s viewed as an aberration and violation of their culture and society, and I’m not saying it isn’t an aberration.

    If a non-white/non-Christian person does something terrible, you guys seem to want to blame their entire culture on it. And feel like THE PC POLICE are at fault for not letting you blame a billion people for the actions of one.

  3. Thanks Mark. I admit I was dumb enough to have thought this one might actually be “argument-proof,” so laughably slanted is the prevalent elite urge to cut this fresh new terrorist some slack vis-a-vis his [all too obvious] motive. But sure enough, the voices under the bridge are sounding! See above.

    Steve T: Well I for one definitely enjoyed “The Three Billygoats Gruff” as a kid (so to speak); though not as much as “The Emperor’s New Clothes” which as we all know is a timeless metaphor being played out bigtime in the form of our current president.

    Chris E.– I think what we want to blame certain non-white/non-Christian killers for is that same creed of radical Islam which has resulted in some 14,000 worldwide deadly attacks since 9/11. You’re like someone living in 1930s Germany, witnessing the attacks and plots ramping up against Jews, and then protesting when someone says “Germany is turning anti-Semitic” because, as you might say in this hypothetical, “plenty of Germans are NOT committing violence upon Jews.” The fact remains that in a deadly important sense, enough of Germany WAS turning murderous to make quite an impact; and an analogous situation exists today RE: Islam.

    Zack, I like how your idea of a good cartoon is one that is “argument-proof,” rather than one that generates a meaningful argument. It seems to me that you’d rather have any dissenting views shut up so that you can more perfectly hear the empty praises of your true believers, instead of actually discussing the issues at hand.

    Also, I’d like to know who exactly is cutting the Ft. Hood shooter any slack. I have yet to see anyone on either side of the aisle claim that he doesn’t deserve swift and severe (but just) punishment for his actions.

  4. Not trying to “shut up” anyone, Sarah; That’s why I have this very open forum going. But, naturally, I would like to sucessfully persuade people to my point of view [utilizing, in my case, cartoons]. Wouldn’t you like to persuade people to your point of view?

    Ok, I’ll take a stab at it. One of the men is an oppressor, and one is oppressed. Is that a significant distinction?

    Zack-!!
    Can I, as one of your “…true believers” offer a “dissenting” view-?

    First of all, these two at the door look like identical twins – who shop at the same shoe & clothing store.

    Our KKK fella ought to be holding a small burning cross in hand, and a hangmen’s noose draped over his shoulder.
    Perhaps a copy of the Turner Diaries in his other hand, personally signed by Tim McVeigh.

    The Islamo-Nazi ought to have a blood-dripping scimitar in one hand, and the freshly decapitated head of some infidel in the other (perhaps the head of a well-known conservative, if that would help you libs get another ‘tingle’ up your leg), and he should be culturally groomed, such as having lots of facial hair, a beard so long, that something could nest, and simultaneously hide a handy IED in it-!

    Now that Sarah has inspired me to be a harsh critic,… naughty Zack, your just too naughty-!

    Sarah – do not take this personally-!
    I am grateful you gave me an opening to be an art critic (sshhh-! don’t tell Zack-!)

    Chris, what we get from you, in response to a crystal clear illustration is an obfuscation.

    “I have no idea who these two boogeymen are supposed to be…”

    What’s that sound? Your credibility just going down the toilet. You want to be taken seriously for the rest of your post when you have just demonstrated you are prepared to act dumb for the sake of argument.

    Go away. This is for grown-ups.

    Mark,
    Regarding the ‘from under the bridge crowd’, for a long while, I have been at the top of their proverbial s-h-i-t list.

    Are you trying to displace me from this most special & coveted position-? *lol*

    Have fun-!!!

    Political Correctness caused the tragedy. As usual the defense of this is from the usual suspects. The bottom line, people are dead now. Nadal hated this country for which he took an oath to defend. The point of the cartoon is well done here, admit it. Political correctness+liberalism = death. I would feel the same way if some whacked out America hating racist Christian, a mistreated homosexual had done the same. Although I’m sure I would have heard a lot more around here in the defense of a homosexual having killed a number straight white folks. Because white people have it coming anyway.

  5. Mark: Okay, you tell me who those two figures are supposed to represent in real life. Even on the symbolic level, I don’t understand who they’re supposed to represent:

    One is a clearly racist, murderous white man who wants to kill a bunch of black people in the name of the Klan. I thought that Zack and others here believe racism is over, that Liberals are the TRUE racists who see racism where it doesn’t exist, etc. To portray a scary white racist as even symbolically ‘real’ seems to contradict the standard talking points, and suggests maybe the DHS report about dangerous conservatives in the country is justified?

    Or alternately, the White Racist is a fictional boogeyman, a monster that doesn’t exist but frightens silly childish liberals. Then does that mean the Crazed Muslim Jihadist is also a hoax? Either way, I’m not sure what it’s supposed to represent other than a chance to go A HA HA HA DOUBLE STANDARD, LIBS. Which is that’s all it’s meant to be and I am overreaching to believe there is thought or nuance behind it, then yes, I am a child.

    Beyond that, while I understand that Zach wants the Scary Mosselman to be representative of Nidal Hasan, and I understand why he’s stretching to make that connection… who is the racist white dude supposed to be?

    I could have assumed that Zack was trying to use this to stand in for Timothy McVeigh, Steven Kazmierczak, Robert Hawkins, Charles Carl Roberts, Terry Ratzmann, Michael McLendon, George Sodini or the Columbine Shooters or — I really don’t know, there have been plenty of white folks murdering lots of people lately, but has there been a murderous *racist* rampage lately? I was not aware, and if that makes me a child again, I really am sorry.

  6. And again, who is defending Nidal Hasan? Who is saying he shouldn’t be punished to the fullest extent of the law? Who is saying that his victims aren’t tragic victims? Who is saying any of this utter bullshit you are trying to shove into the mouths of your strawman liberal debate partner?

    You simply do not want to admit that political correctness had anything to do with this do you? The military was well aware of the onslaught of a legal storm that would have awaited them had they gotten rid of him when the signs first arose. As I have said before in another post. At this point it would have been worth to have discharged him and our tax dollars paid for the legal action that would have followed by CAIR and the ACLU. Those soldiers would have been alive. I’m not saying anyone is “defending” him.

    Ah, the dreaded PC police. I don’t know about you, but I was taught never to blame others for my own failure to do the right thing. If Hasan’s commanders and the feds that investigated him thought he was a threat and yet did nothing to improve the situation, they have only themselves to blame for placing their careers ahead of their units.

    I’m pretty sure that the Army kept him because they need all the psychologists they can get. They could easily have removed him as a poor performer, based on info on his evaluations, without any reference to his religion.

    I think the FBI was monitoring him, hoping that he’d lead to nice fat headline grabbing case. Probably why they didn’t share info with the Army.

    But please, continue your paranoid ramblings about political correctness. When the investigation is complete and it reveals that this was due to a screwup in inter-agency communications, you can put it with the birth certificate as another administration cover-up.

    Chris, sorry that you think what you’re writing has any intellect behind it – it’s actually just jibberish. In contrast, the cartoon is crystal clear – perhaps Zack clearest yet. You have used this “who is this mythical person?’ carnard before. Duh. It’s a cartoon. You just use this dumb argument to change the subject because to deal with it properly threatens you too much.

    The sad thing is, you truly believe you are saying something deep or clever. Nope. The cartoon is painfully easy to understand, and I’m not going to waste any time trying to explain it to you.

    You ARE a child. Grow up.

    “If Hasan’s commanders and the feds that investigated him thought he was a threat and yet did nothing to improve the situation, they have only themselves to blame for placing their careers ahead of their units.” I absolutely agree with you. There lack of a back bone was clearly 50% of the problem. Ken, do you actually believe that if a white racist killed 13 people of color, because of his perceived “historical” grievance with said minority, He or she would get the same “one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter?” excuse from the MSM? I hardly think so. I would go further, (a lot of what if’s I know). A Native American, shot up a New Mexico Wendy’s for the 100 years of oppression. This is again, the white folks have it coming for past crimes against humanity. Therefore, they are allowed to commit these crimes with the justification that their reasoning is based on violence against them from some oppressive regime or race. Big Money, has already raised the specter of justification:
    “Ok, I’ll take a stab at it. One of the men is an oppressor, and one is oppressed. Is that a significant distinction?”

    Chris,

    I called you a child (not idiot) and attached that to a certain behaviour pattern of yours which is childish. But again, this is another attempt to change the subject of the thread based on the cartoon. I don’t have a problem here, but you apparently do. When are you gonna deal with the actual double standard, not your twisted version of it?

    ikabod, you agree with my point but you miss it completely. What I’m saying is that the “PC police” is just a lame excuse that people trot out when they’re afraid of doing or fail to do the right thing when it comes to matters that involve race. If Hasan’s commanders actually had a valid reason to expel him from the service (something more than just “he’s muslim and he scares me”), then they should have, and most likely could have done so.

    Furthermore, I ask again, who the hell is excusing this guy or trying to downplay what he did? I have yet to see one person refer to him as a a freedom fighter or other such euphemisms. You’re crying about words that you’re putting in other people’s mouths.

    I am sure that none of you are defending this man. Yet your trying to ignore the common thread that is part of his reasoning. He hated the United States. I don’t know maybe to you that’s just not a problem. This clown most certainly did have an issue with the people he even counseled. Demanding that the soldiers he counseled be tried for war crimes:

    No I didn’t make this up:
    http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/officials-major-hasan-sought-war-crimes-prosecution-us/story?id=9019904

    Now is this a defense of the Hasan? No, it is another warning sign of his religion taking precedence over his duty. “(something more than just “he’s muslim and he scares me”),” is that then good enough for discharge Sarah? Or was my agreement with you too much to bare? Your so-called “PC police” is not an excuse but part of the problem.

    http://seminal.firedoglake.com/diary/14250

    Which leaves me puzzled as to why your not defending this guy. I mean come on, he hates the military, the left hates the military. Sounds to me you guys are on the same page here. Except for the whole religion thing…..
